The Christian Olympics

By Ben and Abigail Springer

(for two puppets, brother and sister, 10yrs & 8yrs respectively)

Max: (Saying the Lord’s prayer as fast as he can)

Maggie: Whatcha doing Max?

Max: I’m practicing speed-praying, hey, how loud can you pray?

Maggie: I don’t know, I don’t yell like some people. Since Jesus lives in my heart, I know he hears me even when I just think a prayer. Why?

Max: I’m looking for different events for the Christian Olympics.

Maggie: I’ve never heard of that, what is it?

Max: You know how we’ve been watching the Olympics?

Maggie: Yeaaaah?

Max: Well I got a better idea for Olympics?

Maggie: Oh really?

Max: Yeah, the Bible says, All good athletes train hard. They do it for a gold medal that tarnishes and fades. We’re after one that’s gold eternally. (1 Cor. 9:24 TMB)

Maggie: It sounds like its talking about Heaven.

Max: Right on, being a Christian is like a race, Heaven is our finish line.

Maggie: Do you think we’ll get a medal and a laurel?

Max: A laurel? Is that the hat thingie? I hope we don’t get that, it looks like a giant toilet brush. It would hide my awesomely stylish flattop. (substitute one of your puppets physical charistics)

Maggie: The Bible talks about crowns, trumpets, streets of gold, and anthems of praise.

Max: Now you see why I’m praying, right? I’m gonna train hard cause that’s a race worth winning.

Maggie: Hey, I know a praise anthem about Heaven, wanna sing it with me?

Max: Okay!
